Psalms 82

1A Canticle Psalm of Asaph. 2O God, who will ever be like you? Do not be silent, and do not be unmoved, O God. 3For behold, your enemies have sounded off, and those who hate you have carried out a head. 4They have acted with malice in counsel over your people, and they have plotted against your holy ones. 5They have said, “Come, let us scatter them from the nations and not allow the name of Israel to be remembered any longer.” 6For they plotted unanimously. Joined together against you, they ordained a covenant: 7the tabernacle of Edomites and Ishmaelites, and Moab and the Hagarites, 8and Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, the foreigners among the inhabitants of Tyre. 9For even Assur comes with them. They have become the helpers of the sons of Lot. 10Do to them as you did to Midian and Sisera, just as to Jabin at the torrent of Kishon. 11They perished at Endor, and they became like the dung of the earth. 12Set their leaders to be like Oreb and Zeeb, and Zebah and Zalmunna: all their leaders 13who said, “Let us possess the Sanctuary of God for an inheritance.” 14My God, set them like a wheel, and like stubble before the face of the wind. 15Set them like a fire burning up the forest, and like a flame burning up the mountains. 16So will you pursue them in your tempest, and disturb them in your wrath. 17Fill their faces with shame, and they will seek your name, O Lord. 18Let them be ashamed and troubled, from age to age, and let them be confounded and perish. 19And let them know that the Lord is your name. You alone are the Most High in all the earth.
